By irrigating the paddy field with geoheat water, the farmer produces clean and unpolluted “geoheat rice.” The rice tastes fragrant and is pleasantly chewy. For a hundred years, the Liao family has had a close relationship with rice. They’ve also developed all kinds of group activities for visitors to experience. They even imported half-a-person tall rice milling machine from Japan so tourists can learn about the complicated process of making brown rice after being hulled to white rice after the brans are removed.
The owner also prepares sushi rice and ingredients for tourists to make their own sushi. The most popular activity is definitely the puffed rice activity. After the machine warms up for 3-5 minutes, tourists put rice into the rice puffing machine and heat it up to generate a high pressure. When the valve is opened the rice instantly expands and turns into fragrant puffed rice which they can then pour maltose into and mold to shape. It’s a fun way to enjoy rice.
